Cargo plane from Greece searched in Bologna

ROME — Police on Wednesday said authorities at Bologna's airport were searching for a suspicious package believed addressed to Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi and flown aboard a cargo plane from Greece.
Police spokeswoman Donatella Dosi told The AP in Rome the pilot of the TNT plane asked to make an unscheduled landing in Bologna on the Paris-bound flight after his company told them a suspicious package was "probably" on board.
Bologna's airport was closed while the plane was searched for hours after it landed late Tuesday night.
The ANSA news agency says Greek officials checking a list realized a package addressed to Berlusconi was probably among the cargo.
